Author's Friday Special: Sy Montgomery Friday, July 29 from 1:00 - 4:00

Sy Montgomery is an author and adventurer, whom the Boston Globe calls, “Part Indiana Jones and part Emily Dickinson.” To research her books, films, and articles, she has been chased by a silverback gorilla, embraced by a Giant Pacific Octopus, and undressed by an orangutan. But she is perhaps best known for her 14-year love affair with Christopher Hogwood, a runt piglet who grew into a 750-pound great Buddha master.

Norma, a forgotten silent star, lives in exile in her grotesque mansion, screening her old films, dreaming of a comeback. A down-on-his-look screenwriter is persuaded to move in and help her, causing many complications.

With a mesmerizing performance by Gloria Swanson, this 1950 film was nominated for 11 Academy Awards, and coined the expression, “"All right, Mr. DeMille, I'm ready for my close-up".
